Coffee with Jesus = Amazing Grace Revealed

I attended Coffee with Jesus last night at a local church with three of my girlfriends. I couldn't help but notice several things about the evening:

ach of us shed tears at one point - tears of awe and amazement at God's love and grace.
-Three of the four of us attended Coffee with Jesus a couple of months ago and commented on how the mood, lessons, tone, songs, etc. were completely different - yet both evenings we experienced exactly what
we needed to hear/experience on that evening--in other words: God is amazing! (Have I said that few times already??)
-I was further reminded how amazing God is in that even though we each brought with us different "baggage" and burdens, we each felt our burdens a bit lighter by the time the evening was over!
-God used the music and the singers and even the place to reach down from heaven to touch each of us; to interact with us -- up close and personal.

**Amazing = to overwhelm with surprise or sudden wonder; astonish greatly; to bewilder; perplex.**

God surprises me every single day. I forget to look for wonder sometimes, but God makes sure I notice it anyway. When I really stop to take it all in I am overwhelmed, indeed.

No matter what you are going through--no matter how tough your situation may be - remember that an amazing, astonishing, bewilderingly gracious God is with you -- every single step of the way.

My prayer today is that you are amazed, bewildered, perplexed and, yes, overwhelmed, by God's amazing grace.

Blessings on your journey,
